The Miss Universe Philippines organization is all set to host the coronation for Miss Universe Philippines 2021 where delegates from all over the country will participate and compete for the national crown and win a chance to represent the Philippines at Miss Universe 2021. The winner will succeed Miss Universe Philippines 2020, Rabiya Mateo, who represented the country at Miss Universe 2020 in the United States and finished in the top 21 at the end of the event's finale.

Chelsea Anne Manalo is one of the divas whose name became the talk of the town after various pageant fanatics noticed her potential and included her on the wish list for the Miss Universe Philippines 2021 title. Hailing from Bulacan, the Filipino-American beauty is 22-years-old and is emerging as one of the potential delegates for the competition.



Chelsea is not new to the world of beauty pageants as she participated in Miss World Philippines 2017 and finished in the Top 15 at the end of the event's finale. The Bulakenya beauty at the 'Aces and Queens' beauty camp has walked in some local fashion shows and beauty pageants and is finally getting the recognition she rightly deserves. She was one of the favourites for the Miss World Philippines 2017 crown too and was highly appreciated for her performance throughout the competition.

The beauty queen is confident, strong, and determined in her life goals, and if she decides to compete in Miss Universe Philippines 2021, she is expected to give her all and make the people of her province proud. If Chelsea Anne Manalo wins Miss Universe Philippines 2021, she could be the first black Filipino-American representative of the Philippines at Miss Universe, which is an accomplishment.



Chelsea’s participation rumours have gained a lot of attention as people across the world have been showering love and support on the diva, encouraging her to participate in the competition because she is experienced, has the zeal to win, and is extremely focused on winning. She is a positive person who believes in working hard and using the platform given to her to do something significant for society. She is grateful for the opportunities that have allowed her to be confident, focused, and to recognize her potential as a beauty queen. She could be a strong contender for Miss Universe Philippines 2021 if she decides to participate.
